Proposed Reductions to LGDF
Village Board Urges the Governor and General Assembly to Protect Local Government Funding
On Monday, March 16, 2015, the Skokie Village Board unanimously approved a resolution urging Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner and the Illinois General Assembly not to reduce local government revenues. The Governor recently proposed a 50 percent reduction to the municipal share of the state income tax, also known as the Local Government Distributive Fund.
At a 50 percent reduction level, Skokie will lose an estimated $3.2 million annually. Click here to view the March 16, 2015 resolution approved by the Skokie Village Board.
